Stapling together of Q3'17 results

Guys - I did this back in Q2 and folks seem to find it a useful reference resource as well as a good jumping off point for specific conversations. Some of the results below folks have shared on the board already, some are new postings. I will add to this during the quarter.
Cheers

Q3 EPS of $1.29 beats by $0.26.
Revenue of $8.29B (+60.7% Y/Y) beats by $440M.
The fastest growing large cap on the planet kills it again. Why risk being in JD when this juggernaut delivers every time. Growth rates accelerate to an all time high. Singles day coming up - but this time connected to the Lazarda universe sale across SE Asia where they now hold 80% stake. Ali Baba cloud doubles again.

good review ant

lots of companies there that I am not familiar with. Perhaps you could bring up some of these for discussion here.

I need to look into MELI more closely. Though I prefer US companies.

Hi Mauser - thanks. Glad you appreciate & value it - I tried to cover what I have seen of interest from the board as well as my own interests.

Yeh there are plenty that have been discussed by the board, some that I have brought up and discussed individually (e.g. Micron/CEVA) or as part of my monthly reviews (Mazor/CyberArk/Fortinet), some that don’t fit a Saul method strategy but I invest in anyhow and also touch on in my reviews (Blackstone/KKR), some that are China stocks that I committed to not bringing to the board given the resolute resistance to consider such investments regardless of the fundamental merits (save from contributing to other’s discussions around China stocks where I can make a contribution e.g. Ali Baba) and then there are some that probably haven’t been discussed - I will look at whether there are any of interest that have not received a decent airing in the board’s discussions.

Cheers
Ant
